It's the time of year for outdoor events, which means outdoor sitting – often on "non-chair surfaces." From summer concerts to Shakespeare in the Park, when the weather turns wonderful, activities move to more natural venues. These beautiful, wide open spaces can offer an auditorium made from a soft green meadow. Actually, they're more likely

Use these energy savers year ‘round. When old man winter is at the door, they keep heat in and drafts out. In the summer, they help keep cool air inside and heat and humidity outside. Good in smoky conditions too!

We were inspired to bring back this classic Halloween project not just because it's a fast and fun decorating idea for the upcoming spooky season, but also because we had a recent bat encounter. A pair of Little Brown Bats (that is actually what they're called - cute, but also scientific, I guess) flew in
Ahhhh; it's a lovely summer day on the patio. Blue skies, bright sun... actually, really bright. Blinding might be a better word!
